We are passionate about helping you achieve healthy, glowing, youthful looking skin, so we’ve invested in several leading technologies to get the job done with minimal to no social downtime. The problem is, with so many treatments to choose from, how do you know which skin treatment is right for you? This is precisely where we come in!

During your personal consultation, our skin care team will closely evaluate your concerns and skin type to help you devise the optimal skin care plan for your unique needs and complexion goals. No two people are the same, and neither are their skin care regimens.

To help you get a better handle on your options, here’s a breakdown of our leading skin revitalizers and their benefits. Keep in mind that it’s a great time to undergo laser skin treatments and any type of skin renewal service, before the intense summer sun kicks in. And remember that we are here to help! Call us at (702) 778-6886 with any questions!

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8’s claim to fame is that its advanced design enables the deepest penetrating microneedling treatment in the industry. This is great news for anyone out there seeking dramatic skin resurfacing benefits, because the deeper the microneedles penetrate, the better your results! Generally speaking, microneedling was first indicated and FDA-cleared for improving acne scars and other tricky textural irregularities. A series of treatments helps to gradually diminish deep acne scars while also fading away pigmentation changes to reveal dramatically smoother, more evenly toned skin. To boost benefits in a major way, Morpheus8 added radiofrequency (RF) energy to the mix, affording a synergistic and unbeatable combination of deep microneedling and RF energy for intense skin renewal and tightening from the inside out.

Is Morpheus8 for you?

Bottom line: We love Morpheus8 for smoothing skin and tightening and lifting crepey skin. It’s an overall complexion enhancer that can take away years of aging and sun damage when used in conjunction with proper skin care and sun protection.

IPL Photofacial

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is exactly as it sounds, stimulating your skin with intense pulses of light to trigger new collagen and elastin growth. IPL is renowned for correcting all those dark spots we notice after years of sun exposure, like freckles, age spots and brown spots. It’s also fantastic at getting rid of pesky facial veins and broken capillaries. Redness can also be dramatically reduced and even kept at bay, which is why IPL is such a mainstay among those with rosacea.

Is IPL for you?

Bottom line: If you’re looking for more immediate textural improvements and tightening, we’ll steer you toward skin tighteners like Morpheus8 and other skin resurfacing treatments. Incorporating IPL into your seasonal skin care routine is simply a must. With long-term use, IPL can help to strengthen your skin and keep it looking healthy and resilient as a result of all the new collagen and elastin you’re generating.

Chemical Peels

Both textural and tonal improvements can be achieved with a series of chemical peels. This tried-and-true, clinically proven skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for all skin types, even darker tones. Chemical peels help soften lines and wrinkles, brighten dullness and fade away dark spots, all with minimal social downtime, depending on the intensity of your peel.

Are chemical peels for you?

Bottom line: If you’re looking for an overall complexion refresh with dramatic improvements such as reducing lines, tightening lax skin and brightening and evening out skin tone, you may love chemical peels. We also recommend chemical peels for people with darker skin tones who may not be well suited for IPL photofacials.

Are you ready to hit the refresh button on your skin? We certainly are! Don’t forget that we are here to help you understand every treatment so you know exactly what you need to look and feel your best!
